Video: Bob Stoops calls veterans with a special surprise

Really, really cool video here from Oklahoma, where Bob Stoops enlisted the help of the Sooner mascot to deliver a special message to veterans and fans of Oklahoma football.

Stoops FaceTimes with a few veterans and then surprises them with a personal invite to this week's game as a special guest, along with a few more tickets for their family. Stoops also thanks each and every one of them for their service.

This is really a great idea, and I found myself getting chills multiple times throughout the clip. Really classy.

How would you react if you received a FaceTime from @OU_CoachStoops?

A #VeteransDay🇺🇸 surprise from the #Sooners (w/ @PatriotFord).
